What are the facts that we know about Senator Bam Aquino regarding the Free Education Law? 

He is a Senator that’s part of the education committee

He passed the vetoed 2016 Senate Bill No. 177 (Free Higher Education For All Act)

He is part of the group of Senators that filled the approved 2017 Senate Bill No. 1304 (Free Higher Education For All Act)

First of all, veto is the special power of the president to deny a presented Senate Bill.  Second, Aquino’s Senate Bill 177 was vetoed due to the lack thereof a financial aspect with regard to this version of the Free Higher Education for All Act. But lastly, the 2017 version of the Free Higher Education for All Act was approved, which became the Republic Act 10931, due to the presence of its financial aspect that was filed by the finance committee which Aquino wasn’t a part of.

On a Facebook post by Sass Sasot’s page For the Motherland, It is clearly seen that Bam Aquino was trying to steal the spotlight for a law that is incredibly beneficial for the betterment of the Philippines’ Economy. Why is Aquino hogging all the credit for such a law to the point that it appears to be that he solely filed and worked for this law?  Bam Aquino is clearly exploiting all the credit which would support his stand on education as a canditatorial president of the 2022 elections. Politics, that’s what this is.

And sadly enough, all the effort of the congressmen that actually worked hard for, to compile 58 bills into the House Bill No. 5633 and patiently waited for the approval of both the senate and the president were left in the shadows of this beneficial and revolutionary act. Bam apparently was just taking the credit of all his subordinates and of the House of Representatives.
